Seeing as how we’ve got a brand-spankin’ new year just starting off (well, okay, it started a while ago, but who’s counting?), I thought, wouldn’t it be nice to talk about some other new things. We all know that there are lots of excellent, well-established paranormal authors out there. But they all had to start somewhere! So today, we’re going to highlight some new paranormal authors who are publishing their first book this year. Who knows – maybe one of these will be the next Christine Feehan, Sherrilyn Kenyon or Nora Roberts! Besides, if you’re like me, your favorite authors can’t write fast enough to keep up with you, so finding new favorites is key to keeping the addiction fed. Hopefully, this list will help:
Jamie Leigh Hansen
First Book: Betrayed
Released January 2, 2008
This sounds like a complex storyline involving past lives, curses, and something about a “stone prison.” Is there a gargoyle thing going on, or is it an actual prison? If you’ve read this – let us know!
First Book: Bedlam, Bath and Beyond
Released January, 2008
Who hasn’t sometimes thought (or maybe wished) that their life was some kind of elaborate hoax? Apparently, that’s what happens to the heroine in this story. Could be a fun romp, complete with demons and shapeshifters. Have you read it? Tell us about it!
This one’s a mystery! This author appears to be releasing an entire trilogy this year, and as far as I can tell they are her first publications, but I cannot find any information about her anywhere! No descriptions of the books are to be found either. I love the covers… but what are they about? Anybody have a lead?
First Book: La Vida Vampire
Release Date: April 1, 2008
Living forever sounds good, but what if you were locked in a coffin for over 200 years? Gives immortality a whole new spin, doesn’t it? La Vida Vampire tells the story of just such a person.. er, vampire.
Who’s on your “to watch” list?
